A little birdie told me that a stall – Roberts Char Kuey Teow, located in Restaurant Lucky Seng, serves some tasty Fried Kuey Teow. As I am a fan, I found my way here soon enough in hopes of eating some good food.
** Parking: If you cant find a parking spot along the road, do park at Seventeen Mall (RM 1 for first 2 hours). It is located just a short distance from one another.
If you visit during lunch hour, be prepared for the restaurant to be crowded. Not only do the folks working nearby drop by, people from the neighbourhood too seem to be regulars here, especially during lunch.
Char Kuey Teow (Big), RM 9.50
Since the reason for my visit was to give Roberts Char Kuey Teow a try, it was the first dish I went for. Oooo, this was indeed a yummy plate of noodles. Good flavor with slightly charred taste, which I liked. The dish also included 4 pieces of prawns, some chinese sausage and cockles. I’ve got no complains except for its greasiness. Yup, the noodles here were extra oily. Besides that, it was all good.
Kampar Curry Mee (Big), RM 10
As a matter of preference, I generally like my curry mee broth to be on the thicker side. The one here had thinner gravy. Thin but not watery. In fact, flavor wise, it was pretty good. Once everything was mixed, I hardly even noticed the gravy texture. The dish also included steamed chicken, fishball, tauhu, brinjal and some yong tau foo items. If you find yourself wanting more of the items, you can choose them separately at additional cost. I did so and added on another RM 8.50.
Wan Tan Mee (Big), RM 9
While the noodles were springy and bouncy, tastewise it was rather bland. That was a slighg let down but the pork was delicious. Overall, this was an ‘okay okay’ dish for me.
Char Siu + Chicken Rice, RM 9.50
We saw a long waiting line in front of this stall. Many were either tapau-ing the dishes or dining in. Seeing that, we decided to also give this stall a try. Upon trying, while the dish was nice, I think the appeal here is more towards this being the neighborhood chicken rice shop. Each neighborhood has the go-to for a certain dish, right? This stall happens to be the go to for this dish in this area. Between the char siu and steamed chicken, the chicken was alot better. The meat was soft and tender, perfect to go with the rice and the slightly sweet brown sauce. The char siu though was just okay. If I were to visit again, I would go for the chicken only and skip the pork.
Address: 1082, Jalan 17/29, Seksyen 17, Petaling Jaya.
